MILEAGE BOOKS, Modified Features_oTThe """New" Interchangeableji Mileage Ticket. Mr E.A.

Therefore there need bo no more delay at the station or on the train In the use o f the new thao there was In using the old farm of mileage ticket, which latter form'.was «ood only over the er stern of roads, while the "interchangeable" is good over forty. The old form of ezchnnge'.tlcket IB valid for continuous passage only on a certain train and date while the new or modifled form will be Hood on any train, (except the "Limited"), on •either the date of issue or the day following. This new form bus been simplified to render !•; easy of issue and to batter accommodate travelers, and the hindrances which accompanied the old foirm will therefore be, in the early future, entirely obliterated. Interline tickets from points on one Railway to points on another, via through car lines and via junctions where connections are close and there are no transfers, are being prepared as JastaBposilble. These tiok«ts will be issued in exchange for coupons from the intercnange- tible mileage tioket.aad baggage will be aback- od through, if. convenience which could not be onjoyed by the use of the oldjform of mileage ticket. The modifications above alluded to have been approved by the Mileage Ticket Bureau of tho Central Passenger Association, and will De in effect on or before December 1st, or lust us soon as the now forms of exchange and Jn- !;erllrie tickets cun bo printed and distributed iimonjr tho thousands of agencies of the forty iliHerent railway companies over whose lines the tickets are honored, and some Agents of i;he Pennsylvania Lines have been already iiupplied with. them.

"That she spoke of him as -ancle maddened Lewis, and he retorted angrily: " 'Go, all of you, but'—picking up Marvel's pistol—'I call you all to •witness that this is Walter Marvel's weapon and that with, it he attempted to take my life.' " The squire paused a moment and then resumed: "I was an eyewitness of this scene, and I assure you that I have not exaggerated it in -he least.

I tried to dissuade him from his purpose, but he was determined to have Marvel arrested for nssaull; with intent to kill. He procured tho warrant, but thus far Marvel has kept out of the way. After several more unsuccessful attempts to persuade Lewis to abandon his object I was obliged to givo up the task. Then the continued absence of young Marvel began to worry me, and l' feared that he might return and kill Lewis. Therefore I have decided that it will be best to find him before any such calamity can occur, this as much for his sake as for the safety of Lewis. So I have sent for you, Mr. Barnes, taking a step of which Lewis is ignorant, Aud now may I ask yon what in your judgment will be the chance of apprehending Marvel?" "Oil," said Mr. Barnes, "there will be no difficulty in finding him. I do not think he is hiding from the law. If at all, it is from the disgrace which he fancies that Mr. Lewis has cast upon him. But if he really loves Miss Lewis the thing is simple. We have but to watch her. He is sure to s;eek an interview sooner or later." "There," said the squire admiringly; 'see how quickly you get at it. I should never have thought of such a mode of proceeding. You are right, too, ai; to j-our first conjecture. Marvel is high spirited, and I should not be surprised if he surrenders as soon as he learns that he is wanted. That is why I have been worried by his disappearance. But here we are at the farm." The house was an elegant frame building of the Queen Anne style of architecture. The grounds were on the south side of the road, so that the dwelling faced the north. It was recessed- about 50 feet from a picket fence, and the party entered through a neat, painted gate, a brick pixved walk leading thesn up to the main door. This was standing invitingly open. Squire Olney seemed entirely at home, for he led the way straight in without the formality of using the great brass lion's paw which served as a knocker. This bold entry w:ts not destined to go unresent- ed, however, for a huge mastiff appeared, coming from an inner room, and growled ominously. At a word from the squire the dog assumed a less; hostile deineauor and prowled about the party, sniffing at their persons as though to make their acquaintance. When he reached Lewis, who was the last; to enter, he raised himself ap on his hind logs, and, planting his fore paws on his breast, tried to lick him on the face. Lewis resented the animal's familiarity and seemed much anaoyecl as he brusquely pushed him down, with an exclamation of impatience. 'Vfby, Mr. Lewis," said the squire, "t'ae dog acts as though ho knows you. Can it be possible that he remembers you? I know that your father brought him here when he first came, bu:; that is years ago, and he was a mere puppy then." "I remember him well enongh now, but I doubt if his lecollecticn spans the interval between now and the time when I gave him bread and milk in his puppy days. I receive that kind, of attention from nearly all dogs. Some of the fiercest have favored me at sight. Once at a bench show in London I beE that I could pat the head of any dog there. I won the wager, though the animal selected was a ferocious looking bulldog, over whose kennel wsis conspicuously displayed the warning placard: 'Dangerous. Do not handle.' They say that a dog knows a friend instinctively, and I am certainly a, friend o£ the canine species, ranking dogs nest to fi-aman ceirigs. But let us"sei5£ my father. I am ausious to meet him." "Well, come in here," said the squire, leading the way into a. room on the left of the hall. "This is the parlor. Remain here while I hunt up Lewis." The squire had barely passed the doorway when he uttered a cry of alarm and hurried across the room. P[js companions hastened after him and beheld the prostrate form of a man lying upon the rug in front of the fireplace. The squire leaned over the body for a moment and then jumped up, with honor depicted on every feature. "There has been a terrible accident," said he. "My friend Lewis is here, dead!" The others pressed forward. They ssiw the motionless body of a man. He lay on his side, with his head near the fireplace, in which were the remains of a log fire. This fire must have been a hot one, as the face of the dead man, which, had been covered in life with a hea.vy beard, was now scarcely more than a mass of charred flesh and therefore entirely unrecognizable. la spots there remained the burned stubs of the hair on tbe face and more on the head, bnfc in many places it was burned entirely away, exposing the flesh, a blackened human charcoal. Lewis gazed in a dazed and semiconscious way at the awful sight iind in a low, hoarse whisper asked: "Is this my father?" The squire started at the question, and at once realized all the horror of the situation. He did not reply, but beckoned to the two detectives to follow him and quieitly left the room. Accompanied by them, he led the way across the hall into the library, and then repeated what he had exclaimed at first sight of the body—that it was that of John Lewis, in whose interest they had come to the house. "But," continued he, "I cannot understand how it is that we find him dead and iu such a position. It looks at first sight like heart disease or apoplexy. How terrible that he should have fallen into the fire and have been so dreadfully disfigured!" "Did you ever fancy that your friend had any physical ailment of the kind?" asked Mr. Barnes. "Why.no. I always considered him the stoutest, heartiest man of my acquaintance." "Is it not singular, then, that lie should be taken away so suddenly as this?" "Now that yon suggest the idea, it does seem so. The whole thing has been , so startling and so unexpected that I have not collected my thoughts sufficiently to analyze the situation. I find my friend dead ou. the floor of his own house after having seen him alive and well only last evening, and I suppose I have adopted the first theory which presented itself." '' You say you saw your friend last evening?'' asked Mr. Barnes in a quiet voice, keeping his eyes steadily fixed on the squire. Something in his tone or in his manner of asking the question attracted the squire, and lie turned aud faced his interrogator as be replied: "Yes." "Where?" "There—in the -very room where we now find his corpse. I came to talk about this business once more and to try to dissuade him from pursuing it further." "Can you tell at what time yon left him? Is there any circumstance by which you can fix the time accurately? Think well. It may be important." "Important?" echoed the squire. "Why, man, what are yon getting at? Surely yon caunot think that— Merciful heaven! Do you suppose that my friend has been murdered?" "Squiri* Olney, I cannot say that I have reall? formed such an opinion, but a man in my profession sees such things only too often, and therefore when he finds a dead tody under anything like peculiar circamstances, such as these, for example, his suspicions are aroused more quickly perhaps than might be the case with other men. But if yon think your young friend, the son, may now have "sufficiently recovered from his shock we will go into Ehe room again.- An examination of the body may remove any doubts on this subject." Mr. Barneis then started toward the nest room, and the squire followed, hardly daring to think of what they might be about to discover. Appreciating the fact that the business before them was very serious, the three men entered the parlor quite gravely. As they did so Lewis, who was bending ove:r the body, rose and said in a low voice: "Gentlemen, ay father has been mnrdered." The squire sank into the nearest chair. His last hope was gone. Lewis continued: "I repeat ce has been murdered. There is a bullet .hole in his left side, where it is almost impossible for him to have shot himself; therefore suicide is out of the question." At the words "bullet hole" Mr. Barnes became all attention. Here was something tangible. Here vras real evidence. The position of the wocnd, too, that was quite important, and Lewis' conclusion seemed logical enongh. But he had used; the correct words when he said "almost impossible," Mr. Barnes was a careful man in forming opinions, and experience had taught him that the seemingly impossible often occur* Still, in the line of thought suggested by Lewis' words, he tamed to Squire Glney: "Can yon tell as whether your friend was left banded?" "Ye!-, I am sure he was not." "Then it is probable that he was shot by some other party than himself. Squire,, the affair is now serious. It becomes our duty to try to find the guilty- parry." At the word "duty" the squire recovered himself instantly and was all attention. Mr. Barnes continued: "The coroner should be notified at once." ' 'I am the coroner of the county, replied the squire. "In this town we have not needed such an officer within "I think tliat tJic murderer fired from the outside." the memory of man. However, in this instance the duty devolves upon me. Therefore I am in charge of the case. Mr. Barnes, as you came down to serve me in a matter now at rest I suppose you can place yourself at my disposal and assist in finding the murderer?" "Certainly," replied Mr. Barnes. "I will simply notify the chief of the facts, and he will grant me more time than I should have asked for before. Do you object to my having Mr. Burrows aa my assistant?" "Of course not. I want to see yon commence your work at once. No time is to be lost. I may have been anxious to hush up -the other matter, but I am alive to the seriousness of this. Whoever he may be and at whatever cost i:he murderer must be found and brought to justice.'' " Very well, sir. From this moment we act under your orders. As you say, no time must be lose. The murderer has several hours' start of us now, and we must catch np our end of the trail as quickly as possible. The first thing to be done is to examine the room and premises minutely for clews. I therefore suggest that you and Mr. Lewis leave us to work alone while you summon men to form your jury. " "A very good suggestion. I will act on it at once. Corue, Mr. Lewis, a walk in the open air will help you after the shock which you have sustained." Taking Lewis by the arm, the two left the room. [COKTOTOD.] Cattle In Nebraska. The trouble with most of ns is we hav& no pasture that amounts to much. We plowed our farms before we knew that it was impossible to make a tame grass pasture. We can have rye pasture late ir. the fall and in the spring so long: as it lasts. In the eastern part of the state the closers and tame grasses do well, but no one has ever made a success of it here. Alfalfa is a success on the lowlands. When we learn how to make alfalfa pastures on high land, cattle raising will be profitable. Such a time ought to come, for we have failed to make the other clovers pay. While cattle are not raised extensively in the east, a great many are driven iu from the west and finished on corn for tho market. They use large quantities of corn. Sometimes it is a good thing for the farmer and sometimes not, for when corn is about 13 or 15 cents it had better remain in the crib. Cattle are high this year, and corn is cheap, so that feeders will make as much money as they do when cattle are cheap and corn high. It is risky business anyway. The man who has not learned the tradb had better let cattle alone. The foregoing is from a letter written to Prairie Farmer by a Nebraska farmer. New Plan For Sowing Bye. Some farmers in the east have adopted a new method of sowing winter rye by cultivating it in corn and potatoes before the corn is cut and the potatoes are dug. By this method a month after the harvest the rye was from two to three inches high and the fields were as green as springtime. The early part of the fall was so dry that farmers could not plow, but by this new method they succeeded in getting rye sown and have good prospects for a fine crop. We should think that by this system many of the dry farmers on the divide could very easily secure a good stand of rye each fall without going to the expense and trouble of preparing new fields for it. The plan is certainly worth trying, says the Denver Field and Farm. >'ew Way of Securing Ice. Most people have well water near the house and can easily have ice made in the following manner, according to a correspondent in American Agriculturist : On a very cold day pump up some water and let it stand until it commences to freeze, then take a pailful ia,ud wet the bottom and sides of icehouse thoroughly'. A coating of ice will soon form. By repeating this a few limes a water tight tank will be formed, into which water may be poured, and it will freeze solid in a short while. An night several barrels of water can be poured in and will be found one solid block in the morning: It will be quite a surprise to see what a large quantity of ice can be made in this way by a per- ion on a very cold day. • BEETS FOR SUGAR. Important Factors In Preparing the iLand For This Crop. It is important not only that a sugar beet should be of a proper' size and shape, but also that it be gro\vn in such a manner as to secure the protection of the soil for all of its parts except the neck ziud foliage. The proper position for a beet to occupy in the soil at the end of growth is shown in tht accompanying illustration. This position can only be secured for the beet by growing it in a soil sufficiently pervious to permit of the penetration of the taproot to a great depth. It is for this reason that snbsoiling in the preparation of a field for 'the growth of sugar beets is of such great; importance. If the beet in its growth sbonld CORRECT POSITION OF MATURE BKET. meet a practically impervious subsoil at the depth of eight or ten inches, the taproot will be deflected from its natural course, lateral roots will be developed, the beet will become disfigured and distorted in shape, and the upper portion of it will be pushed out of the ground. Experience has shown that the content of sugar in those portions of a beet which are pushed above the soil is very greatly diminished. Professor Wiley, iu. a farmers' bulletin issued by the agricultural department, says on the subject of preparing the laud for beets: Beets should follow wheat or other cereal crop, because rihis crop, being harvested early, leaves the ground ready for late autumn plowing, a prerequisite to successful beet culture. The land should be plowed to a depth of at least nine inches. The plow iu each furrow should be followed by a subsoil- er which will loosen tha soil to the depth of six or seven inches more. Each field should have the soil prepared by thoroughly loosening it to the depth of from 13 to IS inches. The land, being exposed through the winter, becomes quire mellowed, and in the .spring can be prepared for planting by a simple treatment of the surface. This is tlouo. after plowing by & thorough surface cultivation until the surface of the soil is reduced to perfect tilth. It is desirable that each portion of the field to be planted should bo thor oughly prepared immediately before the planting takes place. Thus all weeds and grasses which have started to grow are killed, and the beets have an even chance with the weeds for growth. The Hardy Fulcaster Wheat. The Fulcaster, now being spoken of with universal commendation, is a hardy and prolific wheat. Here is what the Denver Field and Farm fays about it: The Fnlcaster is a hybrid of two of our most celebrated, time tested and hardy wheats, Fultz aud Lancaster, as it has the straw, chaff and peculiar eight row head of the Fultr,, with the hardiness, long berry and beards of the Lancaster, really possessing all the good qualities of both. This wheat has o stiff white straw that will stand up well under almost any circumstances, and this makes it valuable when grown by irrigation. It has a white bearded chaff that clings to the grain, not shattering easily; heads long; and massive, filled with the large, plump, flinty, long berry grains. It ripens from three to six days earlier than most other varieties, and the yield is said to be fully equal to the Fultz: It has superior milling qualities. American Mutton. Formerly the Englishman's criticism on American mutton was that it wasn't fit to eat; it tasted too strongly of wool. Perhaps this criticism was merited, for the American shepherd had betn breeding for wool and not for mutton. But with the depression in. wool came a change, and those breeders who were not frightened out of the business en tireiy paid more attention to mutton breeds, so that a great improvement in this direction has been manifest. It is to be hoped that the improved outlook for wool will not cause the neglect of the mutton breeds, for there will always be a good home demand for good mutton, while there is likely at almost any time to be a period of depression in the wool market. Don't give np the mutton sheep is advice given by Rural New Yorker. Killing Pork Early. After severe cold weather begins, though the appetite of fattening hogs improves, they need so much of the carbon in their food to furnish heat; that a mnch smaller part of it can go to make fat. There is very rarely any profit in keeping fattening" hogs after the first of the new year. During the holidays there is a glut of fresh meats in market, so that pork does not sell so well as it does either earlier or later. But it is often late ii spring before perk makes much advance over what it was early. This advance the farmer can get as well by putting his pork" in tie barrel instead of keeping <t on the hoof, earing grain without enough gain in weight to pay to it,—American Cultivator.
